A few options exist to attempt to eject a disk not displaying on the Desktop using a few simple keystrokes. Most Mac keyboards come with an eject button on the top right of the keyboard. Pressing the eject button repeatedly may eject a disc, if the problem isn't the physical hard drive. Also trying using the "F12" key on the keyboard if you don't have an eject button, or the eject key doesn't work.


Remove a stuck CD from a computer

In the event that you can't eject a disc using keyboard commands, attempt to restart your computer. If the disc still doesn't display on the Desktop, click the "Finder" icon in the Dock and check to see if the disk displays in the Devices section. You can click the eject button next to the optical drive to attempt to eject the disc.

If the disc still doesn't eject, restart your computer and hold the track pad down while the computer boots on a MacBook, or hold the main mouse button down on models without a track pad. The System Management Controller performs many low-level functions that don't require user interaction.

The fans, lights, power-related functions and several hardware-related problems often resolve by resetting the SMC. On MacBooks without a removable battery, shut down the computer and plug the device into a power outlet. Hold down the left side "Shift-Control-Option" keys along with the power button at the same time. I thought I was in trouble! Thank you soooooooo much!!!!!

DVD stuck in MacBook Pro – silver mac

The terminal app command was the ticket! I had a problem where nothing worked. So I went into the terminal and spammed it 15 times. Slowly it came out. Taking my mac in for a check, something was making it stick. Your email address will not be published.
